Thread: Aim Zonic Compact Moderator

  1. #1

    Aim Zonic Compact Moderator

    After having viewed the AimZonic {compact} moderator at the Kelso stalking fair, i'm keen to buy one . .

    Prior to doing so, has anyone actually used one of these and could give me some feedback on its 'on rifle performance'

    I don't much fancy spending 250.00 of my hard earned to discover that they look great but fail to perform.

    Any thoughts or advice will be well received.

    First time I've ever heard of them!!
    Found a link though:

    Looks quite nice!
    I'd also be interested to hear how they perform.

    I'd like to know as well, as I need a couple of mods.
    Also like to know how easy is it to change the threaded adaptor as it may mean I only need one mod and a couple of threaded bits.

    They don't seem to be any lighter than the all stainless ASE Utra SL-5, which is worrying? About the same weight as the Maxim too, and that has stainless baffles in an aluminium housing. If weight is a worry then there is still nothing to beat the CMM4 at 220g, apart from the Roedale (which is always a contentious issue).

    I am looking forward to Lewis Potters series of definative tests using sound measuring equipment. I would wager there is maybe one that comes close to beating the Jet-Z, if that. Shame they are so heavy

    Aim Zonic 255 grams, ASE Utra SL-5 is 390 to 430 grams, my maths says the Aim Zonic is a good bit lighter ?

    I would say the Scandinaviens know a thing or two about making moderators.

    I would expect the compact to be about as good as most other mods on the market, sound reduction is noted as 20-23 DB.

    The Predator does slightly better at 23-26DB so, all in all probably not the quietist ever but, if they perform like that then certainly not the loudest either.

    I fully expect for an engineered product coming out Sweden that they will be very well made and they look to be weighted and sized to compete well with current offerings.

    I'll be trying one on my .257 Weatherby Mag.

    Flytie. You mention definative tests by Lewis Potter. Do you know where or perhaps when this is due?

    Already a thread on >>HERE<<
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    According to their advert the aimZonic plus weighs in at 310g, which is what I was working on, but their compact does weigh 255g, so I apologise for my confusion. I was also thinking about the retro-fitting to an over barrel moderator which they offer, with no weights.

    Lewis is working on them as we write, he is writing up his terst results. As with anything he does it will be done well, all be it at his own pace. I too am waiting with great anticipation.

    I may well just hang fire until I read the results of this test . . .it seems that although quite a few people have seen the AimZonic, very few have actually used one. I have a friend who spend a wad of loot on an A-TEC recently and he was unimpressed to say the least. . . I don't want to make the same mistake.
